Exceptionally Dam In NZB National Sale
Last weekend's victory over the males by 3YO filly Exceptionally (Ekraar-Sahayb, by Zabeel) in the Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) at Flemington in Melbourne highlighted the presence of her dam Sahayb (Zabeel-Zonal, by Imperial Prince) as part of the Twin Pines draft in next week's NZB National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale. To date, Sahayb (a winning juvenile) has produced 3-to-race for 3 winners, while her precocious pedigree page includes champion Australian 2YO & Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Burst, plus Gr1 Sires Produce winner Victory Prince & 2 Blue Diamond Prelude winners. Sahayb will be offered next week having been served again last spring by Stoney Bridge Stud's Gr1-winning & 5-times Gr1-placed Shadwell shuttle sire Ekraar (Red Ransom-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba).
